Ryan Adams' 13th album Ashes & Fire isn't due out until October 11, but the first track has already hit the web. Hear "Lucky Now" here.

Adams - who has been road-testing the song live - teamed up with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' keyboardist Benmont Tench for this gorgeous, rootsy track spiked with Tench's watery piano fills and a twanged-out guitar solo.

As SPIN previously reported, Adams' next record is a star-studded affair: Norah Jones sings on three tracks - and the LP was produced by studio ace Glyn Johns, who has worked on records by the Who, the Rolling Stones, and the Beatles.
